Sales Training Lesson #102: How to Close a Sale and Make a Profit

I am still getting over the shock of Geelong getting smashed on Friday night against Collingwood..

(I actually had to re-watch the first quarter to study what the difference between the teams really was.)

But more on that later..

Sales Training Lessons from this week in the land of Blue Rocket Sales Breakthrough’s..

EVERYONE WANTS A DEAL

I went out on the road with a couple of sales athletes this week.

Met several people in retail who told me their war stories… fascinating..

Happy Fathers Day to all you Fathers out there…

Another week has raced by..

Sales Training Lesson #124: Why Life and Death is an important Topic in Selling

What a week..

Australia is out of the World Cup of Soccer (or Football depending on what you call it)

Having a lazy start to the day after a mate’s 50th Birthday party last night..

When was the last time you heard Princes ‘1999’ song.. and remembered when you first heard it and it seemed like centuries away when it would be 1999..?

Time flies by..

Adam Ant is probably a grandfather by now.. and like one of my other mates last night who had a black wig with ponytail and dark sunnies (his wife said he looked like a Big Slav)… hairlines and waistlines can and do change..

So what’s that got to do with you and your business?
